Envaserv Research Consult (ERC) Limited specializes in the fields of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Environmental Management Plans (EMP), Environmental Monitoring Studies (EMS), Environmental Sensitivity Analysis (ESA), Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), Environmental and Social Management Systems (ESMS), Environmental Auditing (EA), Preliminary Environmental Reports (PERs), Annual Environmental Reports (AERs) and Natural Resource Management for industry and private sector. Our experience in the environmental assessment processes and regulatory requirements always inure to the benefit of our clients. ERC’s uses environmental models to carry out air quality, air emission testing and modelling, water quality, effluent, sediment quality assessments to support planning applications and EIA and permitting. The company also specializes in feasibility studies of environmental investment for tailored advise to prospective Clients.
ERC has the state-of-the-art flexible instrument and time-integrated air monitoring instruments to measure air pollutants including ozone (O3), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOX), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), ammonia (NH3), methane (CH4), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, xylene, ethylene oxide, total petroleum hydrocarbons, formaldehyde, perchlorate, styrene, hydrocyanic acid, phosphine, particulate matter (TSP, PM10, PM2.5, PM1), noise levels and meteorological parameters such as temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, liquid precipitation & barometric pressure in real time with data logged in every minute
Noise mapping is an integral part of developing an ambient noise strategy, and for ensuring that current and future noise levels are in compliance with existing national legislative standards. ERC offers a noise mapping service consistent with national and international requirements. ERC also has the capacity to develop noise dispersion model and mapping to assist companies in delineating regulatory compliance points, and also assess their impacts on sensitive receptors or receivers.
ERC specializes in monitoring flue gases of industrial boilers, heaters and dryers, kilns/furnaces, combustion engines, turbines, chemical analysis of laboratory etc. The company has customized stack emission analyzer with capacity to measure flue gases and other important stack emission parameters including CO, CO2, NO, NOx, NO2, SO2, O2, H2S, CxHy, gas temperature, gas velocity, system efficiency, smoke index, mass emission rate etc.) at the time and on-site. This affords ERC to undertake stack modelling of ground level concentration of pollutants with ease for permitting, impact assessment and management purposes.
With its expertise in calculating and managing emissions data, ERC offers a range of services to assess greenhouse gas emissions, from determining the carbon footprint of a single industrial process, to compiling a greenhouse gas inventory for a whole geographical area. Emissions from transport, industrial, heating and agricultural activities are calculated and stored using state-of the-art software package. Carbon footprint inventory forms a key part of an Environmental Strategy for the development of future policies to reduce carbon emissions, and will be a dynamic source of information for years to come.
ERC is equipped with modern water quality equipment for on-site and real-time analysis of all the AKOBEN audit parameters. Our portable state-of-the-art equipment/monitors provide an easy way to generate and store real-time data, which allows real-time decisionmaking. Essentially, they provide better on-site characterization, with pollution hotspots and contamination sources more easily identified. The company boast of a modern lab equipped with cutting-edge equipment (e.g. ICP-MS, FTIR, Spectrometers, HPLC/MSD) for testing trace metals (Pb, Hg, Cd, Cu, Fe, As, Ni, Zn, etc.), dissolved inorganic substance (e.g. Cyanide, WAD, Total cyanide) organic waste (BOD, COD), organic chemicals (pesticides & PCBs), oil slicks and thermal pollution.
ERC’s evHydro unit specializes in Hydrographical, Oceanographic and Meteorological applications for its client base. This unit has highly qualified staff and is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for its applications. The evHydro unit is client focused and works to client’s schedules and specifications while delivering on high quality data and outputs. Our current capabilities are as follows: • Hydrographical/Bathymetry Survey • Dual frequency single beam echo-sounding (SBES) surveys • Multi-beam echo-sounding (MBES) • Side-scan sonar with obstacle detection and bottom classification • Sediment Dynamics & Marine Geophysics • Sediment traction and movement analysis • Suspended sediment load profiling in water • Intrusive ground investigation of marine sediment, including: • Grab sampling • Vibrocoring • Geological analysis of bottom samples • MetOcean Studies • Wave dynamics • Current dynamics • Tidal analysis and water level • Wind and marine meteorological conditions (including relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, precipitation, insolation) • Shoreline Dynamics • Shoreline survey, characterization • Shoreline morphodynamics • Shoreline management including structure planning and monitoring. Our capacity extends further to the oil and gas industry, communications sector (subsea cables) as well as concerns developing underwater infrastructure such as pipelines by performing site assessment surveys for undersea infrastructure, infrastructure monitoring and assessment using MBES and side scan sonar, and underwater photography.
ERC has strong experience and capacity for offshore and coastal ecological studies including macrobenthic, fisheries, coastal and shorebirds, coastal flora and mangroves, sediment dynamics & erosion. A number of ERC staff has been involved and also carried out a number of high-profile offshore and coastal studies including the West Africa Gas Pipeline Projects, Guinea Current Large Marine Ecosystem (GCLME) project, Tullow Oil EIA, Eni Baseline studies, Amandi Energy baseline studies, mangrove offsetting and restoration program for Amandi Energy Limited, Lonrho baseline studies, Oceanographic studies for the Anchor Bunkering company Ltd., EMP of the Saltpond Offshore Producing Company Limited (SOPCL), EMP for Kpone Marine Services Ltd. and a number of academic research projects which some staff have supervised.
